Now And Then

Apparently, we're still snowed in. The federal government is closed as are all the universities and schools. After a day of neighborhood shoveling, our street is free and clear, as are all the cars. Groups of neighbors (led by German girl and Tini) went from driveway to driveway laughing, talking, hugging hello and shoveling. Hell, even I joined in and I'm usually the one inside baking cookies. But German girl found a pair of ski pants for me last Sunday while we were thrifting, so for 5.00 and change I joined the party.

More snow is on the way Tuesday night into Wednesday. DC is the new Boston. Wish we were the new Australia.

We beat the snow from the boxwoods and shook it from the leyland cypress trees. I found a picture of our backyard on my neighbor's flicker file. This is Virginia? Here's a pic of my birdbath in better days and yesterday. Same with the backyard. A girl can dream, can't she?


  1. Central Virginia looks the same! We were out of town when the first storm came thru and by the time we got home the shrubs were all frozen over and weighted down - now Mother Nature is in charge 'cause I can't get to them to knock it off.

    thanks for sharing.

  2. Hope you get your spring soon.
